Re: A good Greek Bible

The best Greek NT is: Nestle-Aland's "Novum Testamentum Graece" (27th
edition). It comes in two sizes: the normal book size (roughly 9 and 1/2 by
6 and 1/2 inches) and a smaller size (roughly 7 and 1/2 by 5 and 1/2
inches). One can obtain a copy from the American Bible Society

Another popular Greek NT is: The United Bible Societies' "The Greek New
Testament" (4th edition, 2nd printing). It has the same Greek text as the
Nestle-Aland edition cited above, but it has a more limited critical
apparatus (in the sense of fewer variant readings). Some people prefer it
over the Nestle-Aland text claiming that it is easier to read. It comes in
only one size (roughly 7 and 1/2 by 5 and 1/4 inches). One can obtain a
copy from the American Bible Society.

There are other Greek texts, but the two listed above have to be the two
most popular.

 From Luther's Large Catechism: "Why, do you think, is the world now so
full of unfaithfulness, shame, misery, and murder? It is because everyone
wishes to be his or her own master, be free from all authority, care
nothing for anyone, and do whatever he or she pleases. So God punishes one
knave by means of another" (BoC 386.154).
